funny how a guy who is being called cheap was also fined for circumventing the cap, thats just so weird.
He wasn't fined for circumventing the cap. The Broncos never circumvented the cap. This is a common misunderstanding of what happened.

The Broncos deferred salary. This has nothing to do with cap circumvention. They were cap compliant, and at the time the Broncos did this, there was no rule on the book against it.

no I very clearly contended that ignoring a bad situation is not a solution to the problem.
To ignore wrong doing is to condone it.
No objective viewer would see my post as comparing cyber bullying to beating a man to death. Only a person with a vested anamosity would try to pretend and infere that I said anything along those lines.
I condemned the act of ignoring/ doing nothing.
thats pretty obvious to anyone with an objective perspective.

On the internet, it totally is. The internet is like a mirror... I've been internetting on Broncos forums and before that mailing lists for 20 years now, and there's no doubt about it: the best way to gain control of your internet experience is to ignore the a-holes and focus on the content you think is important. If the aholes are what pulls your attention, I've got some bad news for you...

Mild namecalling isn't against forum rules.

You do know that placing someone on ignore removes rep remarks from them, right?

You can ignore stuff and let it all slide off like water off a duck's back -- or you can react and encourage further reaction on the part of others. Your call. My personal opinion is that it isn't worth spending a single nanosecond getting upset over something someone you don't even know typed on the internet. Your mileage may vary.

^ she said it very well.

Historically speaking, people like you get eaten up alive here because you pretend that all you care about is talking football, and then you spend all your time chest thumping and name calling with the chest thumpers and the name callers, while the football talkers end up talking around you.

I'm sure if Bowlen refused to pay for players Mike wanted The Moops would've already written a book about it.

And even if he did "go cheap" so what? SoCal has complained Reeves never built a team around Elway when all he had available to him was the draft....why couldn't Mike build one around Griese or Plummer or Cutler via the draft?

Mike signed many a chump for mucho dinero and wasted millions of $$$ to basically go 8-8 save for the Plummer era and one season with Griese / Frerotte

And it still doesn't explain why he's been bad to mediocre in Washington with a guy who spends like a drunk sailor

Before I go into a rant about Shanahan, let's look at some quotes he gave before the season started. Mike Shanahan has done one thing well every year, and that's give fans hope that he's putting together a championship caliber team when in reality, that was far far from the truth almost all the time. He did that **** in Denver EVERY year.

Here is quotes from Shanahan before this season:

Before 2013 NFL Season

Mike Shanahan says the expectations are very high this season in Washington.

According to Shanahan, his players believe that they have what it takes to win the Super Bowl, and they won’t settle for anything less.

“We have a team that you’re going to be proud of,” Shanahan said. “They have set the expectations: anything short of a Super Bowl is a failure.

Shanahan said owner Dan Snyder has given his team all of the resources it needs, and that the personnel department has built a team good enough to win it all.

“Coaches coach, players play and together all of us can win championships,” Shanahan said, “and that’s what we plan to do.”




John and John and the Broncos weren't even this blunt about winning the Super Bowl this year. The Broncos always mention the SB as a GOAL...but never do you see them blow smoke up fans a-holes like this bull****tin Shanahan.

Shanahan has been the worst head coach that deserves a HC job in the past 14 years. Outside of his 2 Super Bowls, what does his resume look like? Not very good. In a league where HC's are judged in the playoffs...this is what it looks like:



In 18 out of Mike Shanahan's 20 years of coaching, he has 1 playoff win. Let that FACT marinate for a second. 1 playoff win in 18 out of 20 seasons! 90% of Shanahan's career has consisted of 1 playoff win! Looking at that fact, you can simply infer that the 2 seasons where he did win the Super Bowl, he rode Elway and Terrell Davis all the way there (along with Kubiak and Bobby Turner).

If this was ANY other head coach in the league, or let's say this was the Chiefs HC, ya'll Shanahan defenders would be singing the same tune as I, and many others are on this forum...and the same tune Redskins fans are singing now. Finishing last in the division in 3/4 years? That is HORRIBLE.

Great HC's don't make excuses. Especially 18 years worth of them. That's what it seems like all the Shanahan lovers do on here though.

Wasn't Jay Cutler 1 win away from making the Super Bowl 2 years after leaving Denver? Yeah, I think so. Cutler didn't even have amazing stats that season either.

Mike Shanahan can't put together a 53 man roster worth of ****. He can't put together a coaching staff to save his life (literally). He can't put a defense on the field that is competitive on any level in NFL for the past X amount of years.

God damn it, Mike Shanahan is at the cancer level of a head coach/GM. He's such a ****ty head coach and GM it makes me sick to think I even believed in him for the past decade +. He fooled me good.

John Elway is the one that deserves most of the credit. He had playoff success and was in the Super Bowl before Shanahan. He's had success regardless of what changes around him...that marks a true winner. Elway comes through in the clutch no matter where he's at or what cars he's selling. Luckily for us, he's the one at the top of the Broncos organization now.

And luckily for us, Shanahan is long gone in the rear view mirror.

Let me add to the list of things Shanahan sucks at: signing free agents. My goodness did Shanahan suck at signing FA's. Simeon Rice...Nate Webster...Boss Bailey...this list go on.

Jarvis Moss was as big of a bust as Alphonso Smith... but we already know which coach was forgiven and which wasn't. Broncos traded a 1st, 3rd, and 6th to move up to get Jarvis Moss. Want to know who was taken with that 3rd pick Broncos traded? Ravens Pro Bowl Guard Marshal Yanda.

Shanahan fooled Broncos nation into thinking we had NFL quality running backs because of the system we had in place. Selvin Young, Mike Bell, Olandis Gary, Reuben Droughns, Tatum Bell, Quentin Griffin, Ron Dayne, Travis Henry, Andre Hall, Cecil Sapp, Mike Pittman...

And he pulled the greatest trick the Devil himself would be jealous of...he successfully convinced the Broncos nation that Peyton Hillis was a 5-tool HOF player.

Good lord, there is so much facts and evidence of Shanahan's incompetence as a GM and HC...it makes anyone defending him look like they need psychological medication on a day to day basis.

And you want Shanny to mend fences with him? Shanny brought him hundreds of millions more in revenues than he took from him. He doesn't owe Bowlen anything. If its not for him, he doesn't have 2 titles and maybe not a stadium either. Bowlen is a lowlife, Shanny doesn't need to drop to his level.
You're nuts. There really is no other explanation for posts like this.

You don't always need top FA's. You need a good system, a good coaching staff, and a good culture in place that is able to develop and integrate players that come in. Shanahan had no idea and still has no idea what this even means.

Some of Broncos fa's these past 3 years that aren't top FA's, yet Broncos were able to find value in:

Mike Adams
Quentin Jammer
Trindon Holliday
Dan Koppen
Jacob Tamme
Joel Dreessen
Shaun Phillips
Manny Ramirez
Tony Carter
Andre Caldwell
Lance Ball
Keith Brooking
Justin Bannan
Jim Leohnard

Kevin Vickerson (McDaniels) was a better signing than any FA Shanahan signed from what I could remember.

The only signing Broncos have ****ed up on was Ty Warren. Took a gamble on injury...talent was there though. Jacob Hester will be off the books after this year (700k contract).

Simeon Rice: 1 year, 3 million: 6 games played 8 tackles 0 sacks

Shaun Phillips: 1 year, 1 million: 13 games 30 tackles 9 sacks 5 pass deflection 1 interception 2 forced fumbles...and counting.

Like I said, great HCs don't make excuses. Neither do great GMs.

I saw somewhere in this thread that claimed you needed a great QB to win. Last years Super Bowl QBs: Flacco and Kaepernick. Eli Manning has 2 SB wins in the last 6 years...check out his stats for those years. One year he had a 73.9 QB rating.

Did these Shanahan lovers talk about that "Mike Shanahan’s Brilliant Last Act" write up?

I mean that **** was a joke last year too. Tell me if you think John Fox would ever let some dumb **** like the RG3 debacle slide with him on the sidelines. Mike Shanahan, you're a 20 year, 2 time SB coach, and you let some **** like that happen?

I defended the recent leaks of Snyder, if they were by Shanahan. Unfortunately, it does not exempt him from his failures in all other aspects as a HC/GM...which obviously he's trying to cover up in the media.

take a look at the stats of Flacco, Kaepernick, and Eli during the playoffs in their runs.

and any of those QBs are miles better than Plummer or Griese even on their bad days.

The QB needs to definitely turn it up in the playoffs and get hot...let's not act like Jake Plummer wasn't playing great.

I mean Shanahan picked these guys and chose to develop them and put them on the field. The excuse of, not having a good enough QB is HIS fault and he should take full ownership of that as should the fans give it that way. Don't have a good QB? Ok, build a better defense...find better players at WR...etc...

Who deserves credit for Plummer's success? Shanny or Kubiak? Didn't Plummer's NFL career pretty much come to an end once Kubiak left? Jake was a horrible QB with a 69 career QB rating before the Broncos.

But that's besides the point...I'm talking about 1 playoff win in 10 years... I'm not out here claiming Shanahan needed to win or get to the Super Bowl like clock work...

See the trend though... Shanahan/Kubiak both think they can win with QBs like Plummer/Schaub when both clearly can't build defenses for ****.

SoCal, despite our differing opinions of shanahan, I think of you as a great poster.

But dude, how can you trash bowlen? He's one of the best; he actually gives a **** about winning unlike many , many other professional sports owners.

Anyone hear Tony Kornheiser on Mike & Mike this morning? He said that Snyder hasn't meddled much since Shanahan has been coach. This is Shanahan's roster and Shanahan's coaching staff. In other words, this is Shanahan's team and Shanahan's mess. Just like it was in Denver. Shanahan was a great coach for Denver in the mid to late 90's and deserves our respect and admiration for the two Super Bowl wins he had a big part in bringing the organization. That said, the guy has 1 playoff win since 1998 and has been at the wheel of the Washington Redskins reclamation project going off a cliff. He's deserving of much of the criticism he's getting now, like it or not.

shanny is going to have to sleep in the bed he has made for the next 3 weeks, snyder is not going to let him off the hook. His players have quit on him because he has not earned their respect.
should be very interesting how this all goes down.

Good. This is Shanny's chance to prove something that RG3 came back to fast and here is some results that might have helped the Redskins win. Of course that defense is his downside. Interesting last 3 games.

shANNYS ENTIRE TEAM QUIT ON HIM LAST SUNDAY. WHAT KIND OF AN EFFORT DO YOU THINK HE is going to get after calling out the O line and throwing the team under the bus so he can get canned and cash in on millions ?
what player is going to respect shanahan when he is making these self serving decisions?
I agree shanny should play cousins, he should have played cousins at the start of the season !
and all indications are that SHANNY was 100 % behind having FG3 start the season !

I would imagine Shanny trying to win games so he can **** the Redskins over with a worse pick.

Then I remembered they don't have their 1st round pick...
